Prof. Dan Shechtman from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, participating in a panel discussion with topic: “Startups, entrepreneurial ecosystem. But how?”. Dan Shechtman was awarded with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2011 for the discovery of quasicrystals. According to him in quasicrystals, we find the fascinating mosaics of the Arabic world reproduced at the level of atoms: regular patterns that never repeat themselves. However, the configuration found in quasicrystals was considered impossible, and Dan Shechtman had to fight a fierce battle against established science. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2011 has fundamentally altered how chemists conceive of solid matter.
Nobel laureate Dan Shechtman, (Technion) was joined by Prof. Veljko Milutinovic, (University of Belgrade), and Prof. Petraq Papajorgji, (University of New York Tirana)
